This morning has been breakfast in a quiet kitchen accompanied by the noisy purr of Peri, the cat. She is also a stray.
My coffee machine is back in Belgium, holidaying at the home of my daughter. I can't begin to tell you how much I miss my morning espresso sometimes. Other times I feel pure about drinking tap water again. Instead of plateen brood toasted and slathered in peach jam, I eat bagels with raspberry jam. Instead of cleaning up and doing the dishes, I load the dishwasher here.
It's so very different. And quieter.
This morning is all about rewriting my CV to showcase all I have done in my working life, and in doing so, make me an attractive employee. My skills are many and varied and so it's all about lining them up in a way that is lucid and marketable.
I am unused to this. It used to be about stepping back and letting my photography speak for itself however the future may need to be about more than the photography.
I went wandering through the zoo, with Miss 11, before leaving Belgium. We found these guys, just hanging out there, together.
